Residents of Bond Hill/Roselawn We are seeking some residents of Bond Hill/Roselawn to participate in the Council meetings that are held monthly for the joint Roselawn/Bond Hill communities. New Vision wants to stay better connected to the work that is going on in our neighboring communities. If you have the ability and interest to do this, please contact either Kathye Lewis Norman or Karen Brentley. We want to have a team of people who can provide coverage and can keep the Leadership Team informed. Thanks for your consideration.

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT
|CELEBRATING THE OFFERING IS A SPIRITUAL ACT OF WORSHIP EVERY BELIEVER CAN Actively PARTICIPATE IN EACH WEEK. GIVING BECOMES A CELEBRATION WHEN THE BELIEVER DISCOVERS THE JOY OF GENEROSITY WHICH GROWS OUT OF GOD’S GRACE. THIS IS A QUOTE BY “MELVIN AMERSON: CELEBRATING THE OFFERING” TO BELONG TO OUR CONGREGATION IS TO BE A STEWARD. SOME MAY SAY THAT “STEWARDSHIP IS JUST A POLITE WAY OF REFERRING TO FINANCIAL GIVING TO THE CHURCH, BUT IT IS MORE THAN THAT. ONE CHARACTER IN SOME OF JESUS’ PARABLES IS THE STEWARD- THE STEWARD CHARGED BY THE MASTER TO CARE FOR THE MASTER’S PROPERTY. IT IS THE MASTER NOT THE STEWARD WHO OWNS THE PROPERTY. BUT THE STEWARD IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT AND IS ACCOUNTABLE TO THE MASTER AS GOD’S STEWARDS, WE HAVE 3 RESPONSIBILITIES;
1. RECEIVING– WE RECEIVE WITH JOYFUL THANKSGIVING THE MANY GIFTS THAT GOD SHOWERS UPON US: TIME, TALENTS, TREASURES, AND RESOURCES
WE’VE BEEN GIVEN SO MUCH AT NO COST, YET WE STRUGGLE TO GIVE LIBERALLY. OUR SELFISH NATURE WANTS TO KEEP WHAT WE HAVE
2. MANAGING- WE TAKE GOOD CARE OF WHAT WE HAVE RECEIVED, WE MANAGE THESE RESOURCES WISELY FOR OUR GOOD AND THE GOOD OF OTHERS
3. GIVING: OUT OF GRATITUDE IN RECEIVING SO ABUNDANTLY, WE WANT TO SHARE WITH OTHERS, PROVIDING GOD WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO BLESS US AS WE SHARE WITH OTHERS.
BEING A GENEROUS PERSON REQUIRES A HEART THAT LOVES THE LORD ABOVE ALL ELSE, A WILL THAT IS SUBMITTED TO HIM, AND A MIND THAT DESIRES TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS. THE LORD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER. WHICH ULTIMATELY REFLECTS ON US AS BEING GOOD STEWARD.
